We have successfully converted 4 clients from System 3R 40 mm Macro to Coin adapters to Stainless S holders, Cost of the S holders are approx $30 compared to the coin adapters at $1800
The last client was about to purchase 500 holders from System 3R, when they reached out to me, I showed them that with approx .10 extra graphite they could achieve the same application with a S holder. Not only did we drop that purchase from almost a million dollars, to just under $30,000, and to boot we gave them double the holders and free spigots for each and every holder.
1. Saved for client $873,000 dollars
2. Doubled their holder inventory
3. Eliminated any need to glue and screw pallets or coins to electrodes, which eliminate two non value add positions, saving a additional $73,000 per year.
4. Macros function more reliable than coins, they were indicating every electrode as they have had issues before with coins, now they are fully utilizing their tool changers.
Now why didn't 3R offer this? We all know why!!!
